Dave Grohl Falls Offstage & Breaks His Leg, Then Continues the Show as The Foo Fighters Play Queen’s “Under Pressure” (2015)

How do you make the show go on after a broken leg? The blessing we give performers before they go onstage isn’t something we actually want to see happen. Nonetheless, stage injuries occur frequently, and in some cases, severely, as when Patti Smith fell 15 feet into a concrete orchestra pit in 1977 and broke several vertebrae in her back. “I felt like an asshole,” she told Circus magazine, “but my doctor told me not to worry, it happens to everybody.” Maybe not everybody, but when th...

Arcade auction ends era for Banning’s Museum of Pinball

If you’ve ever driven the 10 freeway out toward Joshua Tree, you may have noticed a squat warehouse building next to the Banning Municipal Airport, seen its sign and thought the Museum of Pinball sounded like fun. More than fun, it was a passion project for father and son John and Johnathon Weeks, who owned the vast majority of the games there. First a private space to house their extensive collection, it became a destination for pinheads and arcade enthusiasts. But a confluence of unfortunate c...

Watch 1000 Musicians Play the Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly,” Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” and David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel”

In the 1980s, avant-garde composer, guitarist Glenn Branca began writing symphonies for electric guitars — dozens of them, all playing at once, creating unprecedented psychoacoustic effects — sometimes beautiful harmony, sometimes unsettling dissonance — that reduced Branca himself to tears. “I remember one rehearsal where I actually had to stop and cry,” he once said. “I could not believe that I was getting this sound.” Branca brought together hundreds of electric guitarists and percuss...

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s Headbanging Cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Smells Like Teen Spirit is an unusual anthem because it refuses the role of the anthem. It’s perfect for the generation it represented because this was a cohort that was so ambivalent about any traditional values [or] conventional success. — music critic Ann Powers  The screaming existential angst of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” ensured that Nirvana would define, transcend, and outlast the 90s grunge scene. The song was an instant hit. Here’s a description from someone who was present at th...

Vax Live was the first concert at SoFi Stadium: Here’s what it was like

Dave Grohl might be the happiest rock star of his generation, and as the Foo Fighters played their first show in front of a live audience since the pandemic shuttered venues large and small in March 2020, the ebullient frontman was beyond joyful. “Guess what? Y’all got yourself a rock concert right now, that’s what!” Grohl shouted as the band took the stage at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood to close out Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World on Sunday night in Inglewood. And between each of the h...

Steve Zahn’s teenage obsessions: ‘De Niro in The Deer Hunter was acting on a different level’

The actor and comedian discusses his early days in musical theatre, his love of U2 and his passion for fly fishing The first album I bought was Glass Houses by Billy Joel. Then I went to the record store with my dad and he bought Jesus Christ Superstar and I bought the soundtrack to Patton by Jerry Goldsmith. My first concert is kind of embarrassing: Hall & Oates in Minneapolis. I was a late bloomer to concerts. My wife went to AC/DC when she was, like, three. Now I’m like: “If it’s live, I’ll g...

Coast Rechargeable Work Light – The Ultimate Base Camp Light! (Review)

The basecamp light from COAST is super handy, bright, and long-lasting. What more could you ask for? IMG COAST U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Coast refers to this as a Rechargeable Focusing Work Light. We prefer to refer to it as an almost ideal base camp lantern. The advantage of this over others designed for camp use is its size and compact nature. It is small enough that one can drop it into a day pack, to provide an emergency light in case you get stuck after dark. Yet, it is powerful enough to i...

AC/DC: Power Up review – the last crank up to 11?

(Columbia)The band’s first album in six years is a riotous hymn to unreconstructed rock, not to mention something of a medical miracleIn 1980, AC/DC released Back in Black, arguably the loudest wake ever committed to tape. On the one hand, the band were mourning their departed singer, Bon Scott; on the other, they were rebooting with a new frontman, Brian Johnson, whose Muttley chuckle became as much of an AC/DC trademark as the twin-guitar might of Angus and Malcolm Young. Back in Black remains...

AC/DC’s ‘Power Up’ Review: Dirty Deeds Done Very Similarly

Screechy, still-strongly Geordie-accented vocalist Brian Johnson in a tweed apple cap? Check. Angus Young in a schoolboy outfit with a loosely knotted tie around his neck and his signature Gibson SG around his chest? Check. Taut, fast, crunching rock ‘n’ roll and blues-metal tracks penned by the brothers Young (Angus, Malcolm), with contagious, catch-them-If you-can […]

The impossible return of AC/DC: 'You could feel the electricity in the air'

The bassist quit, the singer lost his hearing, the drummer was under house arrest and founder member Malcolm Young died from dementia. But somehow AC/DC are back (in black)At the end of an AC/DC show, Angus Young has a routine. After a couple of hours of perpetual motion in his schoolboy outfit, he heads straight for the shower and then, because he hasn’t been able to eat since noon – you can’t do an AC/DC show on a full stomach – he looks for food. “The first thing that enters my head is: I’m s...

AC/DC – “Realize”

Two days from now, the legendary goons of AC/DC will return with the new album Power Up. A few week ago, the band emerged from the brink of extinction with as many classic-era members as possible: Guitarist Angus Young, singer Brian Johnson, bassist Cliff Williams, and drummer Phil Rudd. Johnson, Williams, and Rudd were all out of the band at various points in the last few years, but they’re all back. Founding rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young died in 2017, but now Stevie Young, nephew of Malcolm a...
